Afternoon schlocky horror fans. Friday the 13th: The Game is out tomorrow on Steam, and handily developer Illfonic has compiled together a list of benchmark results so you can work your expected performance. Quite a variety of different specs and settings have been benchmarked in Friday the 13th, ranking from a humble Radeon HD 6850 + Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 combo all the way up to SLI GeForce GTX 970’s plus an Intel Core i7-6700.

Friday the 13th is, sadly, not out on Friday the 13th, but Friday the 26th. They've missed a trick there. Nevertheless, it's an asymmetric horror game in which seven players must attempt to survive against the wrath of Jason Voorhees. Jason is a legendary killer with an array of tracking skills and some absolutely brutal takedowns. All everyone else needs to do is survive the night in any way possible. Whilst you're getting your head slammed in a door, or being gutted in the log cabin, the last thing you're going to want to contend with is a dodgy frame rate. Here's a full range of benchmarks so you can hopefully pinpoint your expected performance in Friday the 13th.

Intel Core i7-6700 4 @ 3.4GHz 12GB 2 x GeForce GTX 970 4GB 161 88

Just bear in mind that these PC benchmark tests have come directly from the developer, so we can't independently confirm their veracity just yet. However, they are on the low side so it seems reasonable to assume Illfonic is being straight up with these results for Friday the 13th.

The first takeaway from this is that SLI and CrossFire support is practically non-existent for Friday the 13th. You may see minor gains, but nothing of that suggests this is optimised just yet.

Secondly, Friday the 13th is a pretty demanding game, at least at higher graphics settings. If your graphics card is one that sits below 60 frames per second, you can roughly double your frame rate by dropping to the low preset.

Can I play at Max settings 1080?

for comparable desktop gpu, look towards performance between a 970 and a 960.
(i have a laptop with the same hardware so ive figured all of this stuff out)

Will struggle to hit 60fps on ultra. Maybe 50- at max. 970m basically is a desktop 960

what the 290x is 30% slower than 970 at 1080p. what kind of optimization is this. clearly the game is going to lose its radeon customers

Mate your HD7850 must be dying because these numbers cant be right (or you are using wrong drivers for the card, use Crimson 17.4+). Its faster than both the R7 260X and GTX750Ti and kills the GTX750, especially on 1080p. Even the 1GB model is Faster than all of these cards let alone the 2GB model (large memory bandwith does wonders :D). Even if this is an Nvidia optimized title it doesn't explain why is slower than an R7 260X and GTX750. Also why the hell on EARTH would you use a Core 2 Duo for a HD6850, that card is only a bit slower than an R7 260X.

Why mix and match the CPU's and GPU's, should have sticked with an i7 for GPU test and GTX970 for CPU test. That way you would get real/max GPU/CPU performance (FPS) for this game. I mean common IntelHD can run this but an HD6850 cant....

As stated in the article, these have come straight from the developer, the game isn't even out yet.

Sorry didn't see it was from the developer, any way these so called "tests" are full of bottlenecks and are not using the CPU's/GPU's to they'r full potential in some cases and for the HD7850 are totally broken. I wouldn't trust these benchmarks at all.

Well, I think these were just some hardware configurations they had lying around and did some quick tests on some systems, and overall the game doesn't look like AMD optimised, and the 7850 is getting a bit old so... I guess AMD users should wait for benchmarks.

how well is ur 7850 doing ? mine sits at 1280mhz core and been 4years,still slaying through modern day games with mid-high 1080p :D GTA V rocks at 50-60 at full ultra,witcher 3 sits at 40-45 high shadows and foliage rest all ultra,bf1 hitting 40-50 at ultra :D

Mine sits at 1100MHz/1400MHz (Elpida GDDR5) with custom fan curve (around 52% Fan speed at 70c) and core voltage of 1.225v running really silent in a well ventilated case. Spec wise its performance is PixelFillrate 35,2GPixel/s, TextureFillrate 70,4GTexel/s, MemoryBandwith 179,2GB/s. As for games Witcher 3 (v1.31) runs at roughly 30fps+- minimal stutter with all post-processes activated and HBAO+ and graphics setting all on High Nvidia HairWorks off and all that running on 1080p.

Fallout 4 is running rather chaotic (on most systems, very badly optimized) with frames going from 20 all the way up to 50-60fps with average probably around 40fps but with some stutter here and there nothing to game breaking. This was tested on 1025/1350 MHz 1080p: AA is set on TAA, AF on 16, Textures High, Shadows Medium, Shadow distance Medium, Decal quantity Medium, Godrays Low, DoF is set on Bokeh, Ambient Occclusion SSAO (High) , all other settings activated, View Distance is all Medium and sliders are set on 1/5.

World of Tanks is running 60fps all set on High with AA set on TSSAA-LQ. Metro 2033 Redux and Metro LL Redux both run on High with MSAA on around 40fps+- with dips to high 20 on occasion's (for some reason Metro LL runs a bit better dough). These where all tested on 1025/1350 MHz 1080p. I have tested a lot more games but i think this is enough info to get an idea of it's performance. To sum it all up it is a good card and i love it, overclock's quite good and performance gain is linear. For and old school card it is still quite capable even on 1080p.

I don't understand why there is such a massive gap between the GTX 960 and the 970.

There has always been a pretty big gap between the two. If there was ever a game that ran at close to 60 FPS on med-high settings on a 960, usually it would get a locked 60 on Ultra with the 970.
970 was a killer deal for it's time, I'd have gotten it but my budget didn't allow for it. Next time no compromises.

Same, definitely going big next time for my GPU.
